[New-bugs-announce] [issue1533] Bug in range() function for large values

Robert Bradshaw report at bugs.python.org
Sat Dec 1 01:28:10 CET 2007

New submission from Robert Bradshaw:

Range accepts arguments coerce-able into ints via __int__, but rejects
arguments coerce-able into longs but to large to fit into an int. 

The problem is in handle_range_longs in bltinmodule.c:1527-1541. If they
type is not an int or long, it should try to make it so before failing
(for consistency with smaller values at least). 

Attached is a file that reproduces this bug.
